Working in partnership with our clients we get invited to partake in some exciting projects. These major projects challenge us to use our expertise in digital printing and finishing technology to deliver above and beyond the client's expectations, often against tight deadlines.
The Australian Team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games approached Bailey Print Group to produce and install outdoor signage for the sporting event's Athlete Village.
To ensure consistent colour matching throughout the team's branding collateral all prints were done on our HP Latex 3200. This included the rigid balcony corflute panels. Which were first printed onto self adhesive vinyl then applied to the corflute. The project consisted of 469 corflute panels, 318 lineal metres of fencing mesh, one-way vision window film for the exterior of the hang-out room and additional internal signage and print decor.
The unique challenge this project presented was coordinating CGA volunteers in assisting in the installation of such a large quantity of panels, in correct sequencing, across 3 buildings. The project was a huge success and great fun to be a part of.
Buzz Media approached us with a brief to create a marketing tool that was both mobile and static, for the promotion of the “Battle of Brisbane 2”. They presented us with the challenge of fitting out a flat bed tray truck with a mock boxing ring, larger-than-life cut outs of the 2 participating contenders and wrapping the entire structure in the event’s visual marketing collateral. We were of course happy to oblige their request. We used one of our own trucks as the base to build this 3-dimensional marketing creation.
We constructed the side tray walls and contender cut outs from framed ACM and ensured that all components were secured to the truck to guarantee that nothing would move or pose a safety risk while the truck was in motion. The truck navigated high traffic areas of the CBD promoting the event and creating photo opportunities for fans and onlookers when parked at various locations in the lead up to the event, and eventually was parked inside the venue during the match. The project, of creating an effective visual marketing device, was a great success and incredibly rewarding to be a part of from start to finish.
This project was awarded the HP Excellence Award in the "Vehicles" category and was also an overall grand prize winner.
This has to be one of our most exciting projects to date. We used two products to transform a blank wall at the State Library of Queensland into a 3D creation where visitors were to take selfies against this backdrop which was part of the Iconic Queenslander display.
Working with designer Penny Challen the Iconic Queenslander wall was made from various substrates, including acrylic lettering, magnetic wall and routed cardboard.
All the printing was done in house on our Oce flatbed printer and all the cut out figures on our Oce digital printer. Our production team added protective edging to each of the cut outs to give a more professional finished look. The magnetic wall back ground allows the Library to simply remove the current design and install new panels of magnetic for the next display due to the magnetic paint that was adhered to the wall in the initial installation of the job.
This project was awarded with the Canon Oce Arizona Award in the "Most Effective" category.
